- 1 can chicken broth
- 2 cans diced green chilis
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups frozen corn kernels

- In your slow cooker, 5-6 quart, combine all the ingredients, leave chicken raw it will cook perfectly in your slow cooker. Make sure the chicken reaches 165 degrees before eating. But cooking for 6-8 hours on low will accomplish this.
- When the chicken has reached 165 degrees remove from the slow cooker and cut or shred into bite size pieces and return it to the slow cooker on warm, letting everything come to the same temperature. Serve over white rice and garnish with your favorite garnishes. I used cheddar cheese, sour cream, avocado slices and sprinkled fresh ground black pepper on top. Makes a beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious, stick to your ribs meal.
